Jewlicious has reported on spitting in Jerusalem before: perhaps you will recall the case of the Yeshiva student who spat on an Amernian clergy man. A similar incident happened today when Amitai Shasar, 20, spat at a procession of Greek Orthodox priests. He was taken into custody and released on 2500 NIS bail.
Why did he launch a loogie? According to police spokeman Shmuel Ben Ruby
…because he saw the cross that participants in the ceremony were carrying.
We can only hope that this is not a real trend. And Muffti can only hope that li’l Amitai gets what’s coming to him.
See Jpost. Sorry CK.
